The Nexus 7 (2013) will apparently be launched later this month in the UK, at least according to a website that has talked to Asus.
Pocket-lint reports August 28 as the launch date for the new tablet, with some retailers reportedly starting sales as early as midnight, or very early morning.
In addition to the Google Play Store, “the usual array of high street retailers” will also get the tablet – and we will remind you that some of them are already listing the device for sale in the region.
The publication further notes that the tablet is expected to cost £199.99 for the 16GB version and £239.99 for the 32GB model. These are Wi-Fi only models, and it’s not clear yet whether the LTE version of the Nexus 7 (2013) will be launched in the UK soon – in fact, the LTE model is not even available for purchase in the USA at this time.
Let’s hear it from our UK readers, will you purchase the new Nexus 7 first chance you get? While you wait, make sure to check out our thorough Nexus 7 (2013) review (video playlist above also includes our drop test).

Would love to get one, but unless this issue with factory images gets sorted out I shan’t be bothering. I buy Nexus devices partly to get the latest version of Android as early as possible, but also because I know that developers will have what they need to create reliable custom ROMs with full driver support. £240 for the 32GB model isn’t a bad price, so here’s hoping that Qualcomm do the right thing…
Interesting to see ebuyer are advertising the new nexus 7 with a guaranteed delivery date of Saturday 24th…
